Well we are back and very tired but had so much fun. Hobart is an amazing little city. Such friendly people throughout and so helpful. It is a city full of Australian History being settled in 1804 approximately. I read letters from Captain John Hanchett (part of the English blockade of Craney Point, Virginia in 1812) to his son John Justinian who was a surgeon on the Henry - a ship bringing convicts and settlers from England to Tasmania in the early 1800s. What a caring father - the 5 letters ranged from 1824 to 1856 and gave an insight to this family's (well my husband's) early forebears.
Photos to come. Thank you for the birthday wishes for my 60th on 26 April.
